Stag parties 'could be cheaper in eastern Europe'

Brits booking stag parties may wish to head to eastern Europe for a budget break, it has been asserted.

Destinations such as Bulgaria, Hungary and Poland are possible choices for a cheap stag weekend if recent comments from travelsupermarket.com are anything to go by.

Spokesperson Bob Atkinson explained the general cost of living in these countries is much lower than in the UK and the eurozone, due to the countries not being linked with the euro.

"British people, who are fairly rich in the scheme of things, go over there and everything's astronomically cheap or appears to be astronomically cheap," he said.

The comments come as a Tesco Travel Money survey found holiday expenses for a family of four spending a week in Bulgaria would total £1,038 compared to a break in Brighton costing £1,490.

Mr Atkinson added that things like souvenirs, restaurants and pubs are all likely to be cheaper than in the UK.

He stated the fact these nations are using their own currency gives them a "huge" advantage over the eurozone in terms of attracting tourists.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19362563-ADNFCR
